Collection of Lower Ince Walking Day photos, dating from the late 1940's to the early 1960's. Some of my family members can be seen amongst the crowds, they all attended Westwood Independent Methodist Chapel in James Street.

This looks as if it was taken in Burgess Street, alongside the present St Mary's Church, with the bridge carrying the Pemberton Loop Line over Warrington Road in the background.

This is Sheila Murphy who lived in the row of houses before the bridge.
